- Julia Stegner is the new face of the international fashion activities of Mercedes-Benz

The fashion activities of Mercedes-Benz in over 20 countries now have a new face. International top model Julia Stegner will make her first appearance as the fashion brand-ambassador at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin Autumn/Winter 2009, which will take place from 28 January to 1 February 2009 at Bebelplatz, in the heart of Berlin.

At a recent photo shoot for the new key visual, Julia Stegner posed together with the Mercedes-Benz CLS 350 CGI Grand Edition in outfits by Anne Valerie Hash. The new key visual will appear on advertisements, posters and vehicles at the only German fashion show that ranks among the top international events.

“With Julia Stegner as brand ambassador, we have given our long-term, international fashion activities a fascinating and world-famous face,” says Anders Sundt Jensen, Vice President Brand Communications Mercedes-Benz Cars. “She particularly represents the connection between German origin and international flair.

That’s why in our key visual we have very consciously placed Julia Stegner together with the new Mercedes-Benz CLS Grand Edition, which will be launched on the market in March 2009.” The unique, four-door coupe features an unusual design that combines the sporty elegance of a coupe with the flair of a luxury sedan. Sales of this special model are scheduled to start in January, 2009.

Michelangelo di Battista, one of the most sought-after fashion photographers in the world, staged the encounter between the top model and the design trendsetter by the Stuttgart based carmaker. “The idea was to pick up the red carpet situation at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Weeks and thus create a strong connection between fashion and the vehicle’s elegance,” explains Michelangelo di Battista.

The design of the key visual is based on the link between Mercedes-Benz Design and fashion: style, elegance and luxury. “Mercedes-Benz and fashion – they really fit together well. I think Mercedes-Benz cars are chic – just like fashion. So I’m delighted to be the international fashion brand-ambassador for Mercedes-Benz,” says Julia Stegner.

For the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin Autumn/Winter 2009, the international top model will fly in from New York, where she has been living since 2004. “I’m very much looking forward to the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin. Berlin is such a vibrant city. I really like to be there,” says Julia Stegner.

Outfits: Clothing by Anne Valerie Hash.

Since her first fashion show in July, 2000, the designer has been the shooting star of the French fashion scene. She has developed a unique style based on deconstructing male clothing. Her first model was a pair of men’s trousers that became a dress.

These days she has moved away from walking the line between male and female fashions and is increasingly integrating light and feminine elements into her designs like flowing silk, embroidered veils and braided trimming, although her signature style remains deconstructed male fashions.

In addition to prêt-à-porter collections, Anne Valerie Hash also creates Haute Couture and in 2008 she was made a permanent member of the official Haute Couture List. Her unique creations are worn by many stars, including Cate Blanchett, Naomi Watts, Uma Thurman, Nicole Richie and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Australian-born Baba has been living in Paris for 15 years and has worked for Chanel, Givenchy, Balmain and Ungaro. Today, she works as a freelance stylist and consultant for a number of fashion houses and designers. She has also worked for leading magazines like Dazed and Confused, Glamour Italia, Stiletto, Tank and all international editions of Vogue.

Hair stylist: Valentin

Valentin started his career in the 1970s in Paris and worked closely with Helmut Newton and Guy Bourdin. His technical abilities and natural flair for glamour have made him a favourite hair stylist among influential fashion photographers like Paolo Roversi, Solve Sundsbo, Peter Lindbergh and Michelangelo di Battista. He also regularly works for famous designers and fashion houses like Chanel, Yves Saint-Laurent, Dior, Valentino, Jean Paul Gaultier and Yohji Yamamoto. Many stars and top models like Penelope Cruz, Ines de la Fressange, Linda Evangelista, Juliette Binoche and Laetitia Casta are delighted with his talent.

Make-up artist: Dotti (c/o MANAGEMENT + ARTISTS + ORGANIZATION)

The Australian, who has made New York and Paris her home, is booked by international fashion photographers and magazines and is a favourite make-up stylist for advertising campaigns by top labels like Guerlain, Les Copains, L’Oréal Professional, Escada, Emanuel Ungaro and Versace. She is also popular among many leading stars like Cate Blanchett and Maggie Gyllenhall. Dotti learned the trade from Pat McGrath, one of the leading make-up artists in the fashion world.
